Croatia Summary

Croatia by James Stewart

Croatia is a hugely popular destination, with the number of visitors from the UK increasing every year since 2002. Research shows that 66 per cent of people arrange their Croatian holidays independently - Cadogan's core market - rather than as a package. The publication is timed to fit in ahead of the world-famous Zagreb and Dubrovnik summer festivals. This guide seeks out the most unspoiled, car-free islands and coastal hideaways, in the best spirit of Cadogan. It provides key information about which companies to book with, including for stays in lighthouses or on private islands, agrotourism, and yacht charter for island-hopping. It features a dynamic new two-colour layout for easy navigation. It also features a new magazine style, combining stunning photography, tailored itineraries and a personal take on the country. It includes clear, newly designed two-colour maps throughout for increased ease of use. These are the only guides with full-colour touring maps of the whole region. This guide provides extensive listings of hotels and restaurants - all personally recommended for a really local flavour. It offers top Don't Miss sights for each regional chapter, plus Author Choices of personal favourite places to stay and eat. It helps readers: ride a cable car to a fortress high above Zagreb; visit the birthplace of Tito at Kumrovec; go shopping in the cellars of Roman emperor Diocletian's palace in Split; see Shetland ponies strolling alongside elephants in Brijuni National Park, enjoy a meal in Placido Domingo's favourite Italian restaurant; explore the eerie moonscapes of the Kornati archipelago; rejoice in the rebuilding of the historic city of Dubrovnik; marvel at the huge Roman amphitheatre in Pula; sail to over a thousand islands; and swim beneath a waterfall in Krka National Park.
